New York native Jesse Marco
has quickly solidified himself as one of America's premiere deejays. This summer he was resident DJ at Hamptons' hotspot SL East
and is a staple at some of the most elite venues in the world including Liv in Miami, 1OAK in Las Vegas, VIP Room in Paris, and Chinawhite in London. He also has DJed at private celebrity parties for Jay-Z

, Alessandra Ambrosio
, Russell Simmons
and Spike Lee
Jesse made his on screen debut in a starring role in Todd Phillips
' film "Project X
" and recently release his debut single "Daddy Cool" which was inspired by disco meets Dutch dancehall party music. When he was younger his best friend had turntables and he saw the things his friend was learning to do which amazed him. This peaked his interested in DJing and was how he got his start.
He has residences DJing at a lot of clubs and also tours very often, so he's constantly playing at new venues and in new cities and countries. One of his favorite events to DJ at was the Rock The Bells in California for Kid Cudi
. They played for 30,000 people and did a "Best Of" of Kid Cudi's catalog and in the middle of the set Kid Cudi gave the show to Jesse for a bit. It was one the most exciting moments he has had DJing, and said the crowd was incredible.
When asked how to decide what is on his play list for the night he said he really doesn't. Jesse said "I guess you would say I figure it out on the spot. It's more fun and more exciting. It's like tight rope walking or something. To know you can stay confident and balanced while having fun is a great feeling. Obviously lots of practice goes into it."
His favorite remix is Z Trip's remix of I Want You Back by Jackson 5 which he considers a classic. Fat Boy Slim and Moby also have some of his favorite remixes because he loves the big beat era.
Up next Jesse is shooting the next video for his new single called "Superstar" on Disco Version/Glassnote Records. He is also touring with Kid Cudi, planning his next college tour this Fall with Kirill Was Here
, doing tours in Europe and Asia and just writing new music to release.
